It’s a Dream by the Stream in Millbrook, NY, $489K

Serenity, space, and style: That’s what this Wappingers Creek Contemporary has to offer a new owner…

As we’re wandering around central Dutchess County this week, we happened upon this hidden beauty that comes with its own soundtrack, courtesy the burbling Wappingers Creek. The 5-acre lot’s got 500 feet of creek frontage, so prepare to throw open the windows and fall asleep to it at night, or have a cook-out on the deck and wow all of your guests.

The interior includes 1,320 square feet of open concept living room/dining room/kitchen, with skylights, floor-to-ceiling windows, and sliding glass doors that connect the indoors with the outdoors. Marble countertops and stainless steel complete the kitchen, and the Rais swivel wood burning stove in the living room keeps it cozy in the winter.

In a very “summer cottage” way, this house comes with a large master bedroom with en suite bath (which includes marble floors, jetted soaking tub, walk-in shower, and radiant heat floors, thank you very much), as well as an open loft for guests. There’s also a second full bath.

Consider the Brazilian walnut deck your second living room with enough space for separate seating and dining areas. It’s the second best seat in the house for watching the creek. The best seat in the house for creek-watching? Why, right next to the creek, of course…

The property is located just north of charming Millbrook village, 15 miles east of Poughkeepsie and the Hudson River. Taconic State Parkway’s nearest exit is about 5 minutes away from here, putting it just over 90 minutes from NYC by car. What’s more important, however, is that the lot abuts a rural landscape with few nearby neighbors to cramp your style.
